If you purchased any Babyganics products between Sept. 7, 2010, and June 26, 2018, listen up. You may be eligible to receive a payment from a class-action lawsuit that alleges that Babyganics violated certain laws in the marketing and sales of their products, including the use of the terms “Babyganics,” “mineral-based” and “natural.”
The settlement will also resolve claims relating to Babyganics products labeled with the terms “plant-based,” “tear-free” and “SPF 50+.” The eligible product list includes all Babyganics product lines, scents and/or unit sizes.
Your Best Digs
A proof of purchase is not required, but if you do not have proof of purchase, you can claim a maximum of eight products. If you do have proof of purchase, there is no limit to the number of products you can claim. There is a limit of one claim form per household.
While the settlement fund is $2,215,000, the amount received by each member of the lawsuit will be determined after all claims have been calculated, and it will be based on how many people submit a claim. To submit a claim, just complete and submit the form either online or by downloading it and mailing it to Babyganics Settlement Administrator, 1650 Arch Street, Suite 2210, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
Claim forms must be submitted or postmarked by Oct. 29, 2018.
The company has denied the claims listed in the lawsuit but wants to avoid further litigation by agreeing to the settlement. Babyganics writes on their website, “We always start with plant-based and plant-derived ingredients, organic when practical, as well as carefully chosen synthetics or preservatives needed to create the kind of formulas that work effectively and that parents can feel good about using around their babies.”
Babyganics products are sold online and at numerous stores including Buy Buy Baby, Target and Walmart. The product line includes detergent, sunscreen, shampoo, wipes, diapers and more.

Another Baby Products Class-Action Settlement
Another brand of baby wipes, Target’s Up & Up line, was also the focus of a class-action lawsuit earlier this year. The suit claimed that certain toddler wipes marketed as “flushable” were actually not flushable.
Up & Up Wipes Settlement
To qualify for this settlement, you must have purchased the wipes between April 18, 2010, and Oct. 31, 2014. Proof of purchase is not required, but the deadline to submit a claim is Sept. 7, 2018. Claims can be filed online or by mail.
